Kid riding Edited Press Release

The American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and its production partners are pleased to announce the development of a web-based video series about young riders and horses. The videos will be featured on Take Me Riding, a new digital platform designed to interest young children in horses and encourage them to ride. This recently renamed platform, originally announced at the 2012 AQHA Convention under the project name Digital Oats, will launch in 2014.

Take Me Riding is seeking child actors with riding experience to star in the new online video series.

The ideal candidate is a 9- to 13-year-old male or female with experience in major roles in theater camps, school plays or local dinner theater productions.

The ideal candidate has significant riding experience, understands correct riding behavior and attire, and has shown horses or is comfortable riding horses in an open arena around cattle.

Take Me Riding is seeking outgoing, energetic and highly-personable individuals who are willing to work on a video shoot that will include riding for two consecutive days. Members of any horse breed association are encouraged to apply.

Parents or guardians of interested candidates should email a completed liability waiver, a formal headshot or digital photo, a brief list of acting credentials, a summary of relevant experience with horses and a video reel to auditions@takemeriding.com. If a video reel is not available, consider making a short one-minute or less video clip on a cell phone in which a child explains why he or she wants to participate. All submissions must be received via email by May 3.

Candidates who meet the qualifications will be contacted to provide names, dates and locations of upcoming horse shows where he or she is planning to compete or about the name of working ranches or stables where he or she rides.

Please send submissions to auditions@takemeriding.com by May 3. No phone calls or mailed auditions will be accepted.
